Passages | Translating the Landscape: The Visual Terrains of Migration

April 2, 2019 - 4:00pm

Moira Inghilleri, Professor and Director of Translation and Interpreting Studies, University of Massachusetts, Amherst 

“Translating the Landscape: The Visual Terrains of Migration”

Prof. Inghilleri’s talk will consider the interaction between migrants and the physical environment as a space of translation. Landscapes offer evidence of the enduring signs of an earlier presence of migrants whose origins have been forgotten in the public consciousness. They, and the people who come to inhabit them, are forever shaped by this presence as well. In this sense, landscapes can be powerful spectral spaces and particularly vulnerable to multiple mappings of meaning.
